TEKNO’s Will Davison has become involved a 12 car pileup in the beginning of the first race at the Tamania SuperSprint for Round 2 of the Supercars Championship this weekend.
- Will finished 5th and 7th in Friday’s practice sessions.
- Will finished 3rd in the final Practice session.
Race 3 – DNF
Davison fell victim to one of the biggest crashes the Supercars Championship has seen, when a 12-car pile up formed in the wet on Lap 2 of the first race of the weekend.
Davison emerged from the car injured, and was taken to the Supercars Medical Centre before he was sent to hospital for scans with a suspected fracture in his back.
The crash triggered a red flag and a lengthy clean-up period that took over half an hour.
The TEKNO car was declared to have too much damage to take part in the rest of the event.
The crew packed up the #19 Car into the Transporter on Saturday night to head back to Queensland assess the damage.
TEKNO Team Owner Jonathon Webb is hoping for the best after a treacherous weekend, and has his focus set on seeing Davison return home and getting the car back to their Queensland garage as soon as possible.
“WILL STILL HAS A FEW MORE SCANS AND TESTS TO DO IN HOSPITAL, WE ALL WISH HIM THE BEST AND CAN’T WAIT TO GET HIM HOME. THE CAR IS ON IT’S WAY BACK AND THANKFULLY WE HAVE A GREAT BUNCH OF PEOPLE WHO ARE GOING TO HAVE TO WORK THROUGH EASTER TO GET US READY FOR PHILLIP ISLAND.”
After much debate Supercars declared the race would be changed to non-for points, however the Race Results were still recorded.
TEKNO will have less than two weeks to either repair or replace the car before the Phillip Island SuperSprint on 21-23 of April.
“I’M BLOWN AWAY BY THE MESSAGES OF SUPPORT, THANKS SO MUCH EVERYONE. I WON’T BE MAKING IT TRACKSIDE TODAY, BUT HOPING EVERYONE ELSE HAS A SAFE RACE. IT WAS A BIG HIT & A ROUGH NIGHT BUT I’LL BE BACK.”
